The Oxford University Press is world famous and has published many excellent works. Its good record has been blotted rather badly when the publisher has required authors of children’s school textbooks not to refer to anything pork related perceiving that do so might offend Muslims and Jews.
I think any Muslim or Jew who is offended by references to pig related products is a couple of slices short of a sandwich, which makes the OUP not only short of the slices but also of the filling with this brainless interdict.
As I understand it both Islam and Judaism regard pig products as unfit to eat by their adherents. Their dietary rules do not affect non adherents to their religion and non-adherents are not obliged to comply with them.
One influential English Literature text book of my youth was Orwell’s Animal Farm, a satire upon communism in which the pigs played a starring role. I wonder what animal would replace the Pig if the book were to be published today by OUP. Probably those members of the OUP who thought that references to pork might offend and were so worried about offending that they failed to understand that giving offence is best countered by tolerance, not by trying to shove every mind into the same way of closed intolerant thinking with the object of prevent offence being taken.
Sometimes it is necessary to offend.
